You may know these as almond macaroons but in our house we call them almond buttons. They are quite similar in taste to sugared almonds with a crunchy texture.

I serve them with a slight drizzle of chocolate over the top but you can leave this off.


A food processor works just as well. If you do not have one, simply use ground almonds in place of the whole almonds. Use a wooden spoon and bowl to combine the mixture.
